Colocasia Roast (Seppankizhangu/Arbi/Arvi)

If you are a big fan of fried items, then this one would be on top of your list too. :) Crispy, crunchy, munchy and roast arbi is here for you... :)


Colocasia - 1/4 kg
Oil - to fry
Salt - for taste
Chilly powder - for taste


Cook colocasia in a pressure pan. Now peel the skin and slice it into circles. Now fry them in oil till it turns into yummy brown. Finally add salt and chilly powder to it and mix well. :) Colocasia roast is done. :)

This goes super good with curd rice. :)

The raw vegetable/Root looks like this: This is also called as Taro Root.

nithya you have surprised me with another ingredient I have never heard this the root from an elephant ear plant?

Nithya said...

Doggybloggy: According to the site below, elephant ear plant is not just colocasia but all of such variety is called by that name. do take a look at the link below.

I am really not sure of this one. I shall post a pic of the vegetable above. do take a look. I am sorry if I am not really making it clear.

Padma said...

Actually you can give an other name for this vegetable ... it is called as TARO ROOT here in US... if you want u can delete this message after reading :)

Nithya said...
